How can I contact spamcom.net..

Recommended Posts

Hello,

yesterday my mail server was blacklisted by spamcop.net.

Still now I can't figure out why.

The only explanation I get is that spamtrap reports that my mail server sends spam.

It was not nice at all as we:

- use an update virus scanner either on outgoing and on incoming messages.

- use an update spamscanner either on outgoing and on incoming messages.

- MTA is always updated.

- Have many hundreds of domains (and many thousands of user) that use our mailserver to send mail.

- We haven't received any notification of blacklisting

And still worst, we can't point out the problem (if any).

Moreover it is quite impossible to contact from support to get the needed informations.

Here my email that I wrote to "Bruno Hammer" (It would be a person from support of spamcop.net. I get that email looking for some address of spamcop.net on Internet):

==============

Mr Bruno Hammer,

Today the IP 80.74.176.149 that corresponds to the mail server that I administer, has been blocked from SCBL.

So I’m writing you to get more insights about this.

More specifically, I would like to get an answer for any of the following questions:

1) Why our IP address above was blocked?

2) How has he been able to happen if we use regular software that scans every message both for viruses and spams?

3) Why we haven’t been advised that our IP was about to be blocked?

Safe to obtain a fast and clear answer from you. Best Regards,

=====================================

Could someone explain how to get such informations?

It is important for us and, I think, for anyone whose (like us) can be demaged from such blacklisting.

Sincerely,

Rocco

Hi, Rocco,

Here my email that I wrote to "Bruno Hammer" (It would be a person from support of spamcop.net. I get that email looking for some address of spamcop.net on Internet):

...How did you get this? I am not aware that anyone with that name has any connection to SpamCop.net.

...You are quite correct that you must contact an official SpamCop representative for information about SpamTrap hits. Please contact the SpamCop Deputies at e-mail address deputies[at]admin.spamcop.net. You will have to satisfy them that you are an administrator of the IP address that is being blocked.

...Good luck!

Sender Base is recording large increase in "mail" through your server?

Magnitude Vol Change vs. Average

Last day 4.0 2209%

Last 30 days 3.2 219%

Average 2.7

Does your Server stamp (as it should) the IP source If your server is properly configured SpamCop will be able to track and only add the computer sending spam or bounces

You server can also get listed if it bounces email that has false addresses (these often hit spamtrap addresses which have 16 or more alphanumeric address which is better than bank security to guess)

As you are finding that you are getting blocked by the best most accurate Blocklist on the planet It means you are getting listed by slower blocklists which are often secret (AOL MSN HOTMAIL GMAI etc,etc) and almost impossible to be removed from (They also use spamtraps)

Our SpamCop members SCBL Blocks spam BEFORE being sent not after releasing an afflicted IP when spam stops. You may be lucky in only getting blocked by a friendly blocklist giving you a warning shot.

Hi, Rocco,...How did you get this? I am not aware that anyone with that name has any connection to SpamCop.net.

I think he was using that as an example. He probably should have said 'J. Random Support Person'.

There may be (coincidental) information at http://www.uceprotect.net/en/rblcheck.php?ipr=80.74.176.149 which says

spam Database Query

UCEPROTECT-Network Level 1:

IP 80.74.176.149 is blacklisted at UCEPROTECT Level 1

This means spamtraps were hit from this IP directly within the last 7 days.

Find out, which UCEPROTECT-Server did list your IP and for what reason.

To do this, grep your logs (last 8 days) for following expression:

UCEPROTECT-Policy Server

All you need to know in order to locate the problem should be inside those logfiles.

If this is not your IP, but your providers server we recommend:

Please send a compliant to your provider and request him to fix this problem immediatly.

Think about this: You pay him for, that you can use the internet without problems.

For Informations how to get off our Level 1 follow this link

SenderBase is fluctuating at the moment 1341%

I agree with you about the policy of spamcop. But it seems right to me that I have to know the real reason why I was blacklisted.

Is there a way to know this?

Indeed I have started to use again (in a production environment ) annina.sttspa.it as mail server as with had a high increase in mail traffic.. So iT has been clear that the magnitude od annina.sttspa.it has growth hugely..

But what I have been to do?

Spamcop can give me some hint????? So the next time there will not be???

Thanks,

rocsca

If results are due to spamtrap hits, no reports sent.

If results are due to Reports, check the InBox at the abuse address listed below;

Parsing input: 80.74.176.149

host 80.74.176.149 (getting name) = annina.sttspa.it.

...So spam reports (except for spam Trap hits) are going to abuse[at]sttspa.it. Have you contacted them to see if they have received reports that they would be willing to share with you?

...Also, note my earlier reply, above:

...You are quite correct that you must contact an official SpamCop representative for information about SpamTrap hits. Please contact the SpamCop Deputies at e-mail address deputies[at]admin.spamcop.net. You will have to satisfy them that you are an administrator of the IP address that is being blocked.
